Capacity upstairs Victoria Room is 330 and main floor Alexis Room is 270 (non covid)

Starting September 25th, 2021
If you are dancing we can operate at 50% capacity so 165 upstairs and 135 down. 
If you are not dancing you can have 75% of capacity

What are the COVID-19 guidelines? 

Starting October 12th
Only fully vaccinated guests (both doses plus 14 days) will be allowed, negative tests will no longer be accepted as per provincial public health.  For more information, visit

Do vendors have to be vaccinated?

The government is not mandating this but we (Hernder Estate Wines) will require a negative antigen test (taken within the past 48 hours) plus photo ID.  This will apply starting September 22nd and even after October 12th.

How do I provide proof of vaccination?

QR Code is best but you can provide proof of immunization by downloading or printing your vaccine receipt from the provincial booking portal.  Photo ID will also be required to make sure the proof of vaccination belongs to that person.  Should your guests not be able to both these 2 items they will not be refused entry inside and we will not be able to reimburse you.

The biggest question, what happens if my wedding is cancelled due to a pandemic?  All wedding retainers cannot be refunded but 100% will be applied to a new date (even if you have to reschedule 2-3 times).   

Viewing is allowed Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm and Saturdays 11-3pm..  When viewing we ask minimal people come with social distancing (preferably from the same home if possible).  We have wifi if you want to facetime or zoom with your loved ones while here.
